    Just associate them with notepad.

    I think it's something to do with an .nfo file is slightly smaller in kbs than a .txt file - so back in the days of yore, when dial-uppers were concerned about stuff like that, it was decided that .nfo files was the way to go.

    Maybe I found that out from a thread on here :unsuer:
